Non-Negotiable

I love my husband – he drives me insane but I want to spend as much time I can with him. I love him and want to show that love. But heres the kicker: does that translate with my relationship with the Lord? I am the first one to tell you – devotional time with the Lord is so important. Its imperative (hows that for a big word) but am I putting that time with Him as a non-negotiable?

Its so easy to lose track of that time – i know i do – if we let life get away from us. And the thing that gets me is that God is not gonna force us either ya know?

He’s not the sitting on your back type and screaming: READ MY WORD TO YOU!!

Oh that painted a weird picture.

God loves us so much He sent His son to die for us (see John 3:16, Romans 5). so that we can know true love and peace that only comes from God. So we should seek that time with Him right? We should seek to know Him better and find out why He loves us so much…right?

But why is it so hard? Why cant we just sit down and get it done?

As a mom with ADHD and depression I can only speak about me and for me? If I don’t push myself to do the things I need to? I wont do it. I know what you are thinking – doesn’t that negate the time? I used to think that too – so i wouldn’t try.

But thats actually not the case. It shows true love and devotion. Think of it in regards to us humans – when my husband sits there and watches a movie he definitely doesn’t want to see. I know he’s doing it cause he loves me. You see? It shows that no matter how you feel? You will go to God and you know what happens from there? God blesses.

God will bless that faithfulness and devotion.

All you have to do is make sure you get that one on one time with Him. As a mom lemme tell ya – Audible is a blessing. And if you need anymore ideas – i’m here if you want more ideas.

O God, You are my God;

Early will I seek You;

My soul thirsts for You;

My flesh longs for You

In a dry and thirsty land

Where there is no water.

So I have looked for You in the sanctuary,

To see Your power and Your glory.

psalm 63:1-2
